Topic: How to Make Your IT Organization Disruptively Innovative

(An Interview with Justin Lahullier, CIO Delta Dental of New Jersey)

Since taking the role of CIO, Justin has worked diligently to build a leadership culture within IT at Delta Dental. He has significantly improved IT’s image by improving his team’s leadership, communications and customer service mindset, and has mastered an improved project delivery process.

When the CEO wanted to develop Delta Dental’s culture to be more disruptively innovative, Justin was one of the first to step up to the task. He further developed his team and created a culture that embraced greater innovation and is leading the way to digitally transform the company. The timing was great; he and his team rapidly responded to the demands of Covid-19. He quickly facilitated all employees move home to work, and over the course of 2020, delivered capabilities to support patients and dentists alike as we all grappled with the impacts of the pandemic. Justin will be interviewed by Chicago’s own Steve Salisbury, a leadership, transformation and growth consultant who focuses on culture.
